pindell medal

James (Jim) Pindell was awarded GCSSEPM's highest honor during the recent GeoGulf convention in Lafayette, Louisiana. For the first time, the award was presented virtually: Jim was in the UK, our President Don Van Nieuwenhuise was in Houston, and the presentation occurred on-screen, live in Lafayette, because of COVID-19 travel restrictions.

2020 GCSSEPM Foundation Perkins-Rosen Research Conference is POSTPONED

Amidst the increasing travel restrictions, social distancing recommendations, and the rising numbers of people being impacted by the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, the GCSSEPM Foundation has elected to postpone the Perkins-Rosen Research Conference on the Cenomanian-Turonian Stratigraphic Interval from 2020 to 2021. Although this is a disappointing circumstance, we believe it also presents a unique opportunity, by providing additional time to develop a truly outstanding program. The Conveners and Technical Committee strongly believe that this research conference, focusing on the Cenomanian-Turonian Stratigraphic Interval Across the Americas is both timely and significant. After the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic is successfully combated, and work schedules in industry, academia, and governmental organizations return to normal, we will all be better able to engage with each other to achieve the understanding this important geologic interval requires. We look forward to seeing you all at next year’s meeting.

In the meantime, our thoughts stay with our colleagues, friends, and families that are being directly impacted by this multifold crisis. We ask that everyone please continue to observe all public health recommendations and stay safe and healthy.

Please read the announcement regarding the 2021 Perkins-Rosen Research Conference "The Cenomanian-Turonian Stratigraphic Interval Across the Americas: Argentina to Alaska" here.
